    Simples in theory...but not in practise...... I need a high quality, (preferably ergonomic) bluetooth mouse...

    Background: Used for a range of CAD/Photoshop/rendering programs. I broke my mighty mouse, and although good tbh wasnt impressed with the scoll-ball's performace for the £. New magic mouse although solves the scoll-ball issue with fun touchy-tech, isnt very ergonomic and even when cracked for 3 button use, is slightly buggy, ive tried, it disappointed.... :D The logitech mice are brilliant quality/ergonomic but im fed up of the one im borrowing off a friend using up a usb slot on my macbook (not an issue on my mac pro, but i mainly use a Wacom tablet mouse on that anyway).

    .......So I'm down to two mice, the Razer Orochi and some version of the Sony VGP-BMS range. Both similar price (from new, ebay might sway me towards an earlier sony version). From what i've read/seen Orochi + is on performance, Sony + is on quality.

    Any personal opinions/review OR any alternatives i should also look at before making a decision??

    Many Thanks

    You're alright with the Razer mouse being a small form-factor laptop mouse, yes?

    I had a white logitech Bluetooth mouse. Don't remember the model, I think they only make one. I liked it a lot, but it seemed a bit small in my hand. Worked great for portable work on my old MacBook. gave it to the person who bought my MacBook, kinda wished I would have kept it now.

    I had a logitech v470 BT mouse that worked well but I like to have no lag at all when I decide to reach for the mouse and just about every BT mouse will have some lag... I prefer using a nano receive mouse and there are many inexpensive models to choose from.

    Right now I like my logitech unifiying nano products since one receiver can connect up to 6 devices and that gives me a keyboard, mouse and number pad as needed.

    I've never had any lagging issues, im not gaming with it so shouldnt be an issue, id rather the usb slot be free tbh.
